Hosting an event is easy and we have lots of resources to help make the day a success. Simply follow these step by step instructions.
Choose the type of activity or event you would like to host. We’ve included some great ideas
to get you started.
Once you have chosen your event, you need to register online (at the bottom of this page). Please allow up to 1 week for us to get back to you. All events must be registered when using our brand and collecting money or raising money on our behalf. Events must also be approved prior to their start and any changes to the approved event must be notified in writing to email@example.com at least 14 days before the event starts. Please note that all events are to be conducted by an adult unless written permission has been provided by a parent or guardian to host the event. Please forward appropriate permission to firstname.lastname@example.org. Once your event is approved, you will receive a letter of confirmation and in the case of a fundraising event, an Authority to Fundraise letter. We also ask that you review and follow the guidelines which are contained within the Event and Fundraising Kit.
If you would like to raise funds, you can either set up a fundraising page at everydayhero.com.au or justgiving.com and select Blue Knot Foundation as your charity of choice, or fundraise following the requirements as specified in the Event and Fundraising Kit. It’s a great idea to set a target and have something to aim for.
Send out invitations
and create awareness around your event. Get everyone involved! We’ve created some invitations
which you can use. You may also like to purchase some merchandise like blue knot bracelets which can be found here
If you would like to theme your event, we have some great resources which we’ve created and can be downloaded from our website, or copied from the Event and Fundraising Kit.
Spread the word on social media. In the lead up and on the day, let people know what you are doing and what your goal is. Ask people to share with their networks, and share their Blue Sky moment. Our social media kit including links and hashtags can be downloaded here.
Enjoy the day and thank everyone who donated, contributed or sponsored your activity.
If you have collected funds directly (not through the recommended platforms) please deposit funds as outlined in the Event and Fundraising Kit. We have also created a remittance form which makes this easier.
You must complete the registration below if you would like to fundraise or hold an event on behalf of Blue Knot Foundation and Blue Knot Day.
